Thanks to React Native, we managed to deliver a 4.7 stars app in 8 weeks. The Android and iOS apps being developed on a single codebase was crucial to this success.
But here, we also leveraged our expertise in sharing code between React and React Native in order to reuse all the business logic already written for the website. This allowed for super-fast delivery and easier maintenance of the code while ensuring code quality and consistency across the app and website.
Looks and feels like a native app
React Native is a framework developed by Facebook to accelerate their mobile apps' development. React Native applications have the same look & feel as native applications while keeping web-like development speed and flexibility. Apps can therefore be deployed faster on both Android and iOS without any sacrifice in performance or UX.
In practice, this means that developers work on a single codebase. This makes app development much faster: an average of 30% time is saved on the development and maintenance of Android and iOS apps.
Ease of adding features
React Native is based on the React.js framework which is simple and modular. The native UI building blocks that it uses can be interchanged and reused, allowing to easily iterate on the product without costly refactorings.
"We're building some amazing apps for clients using React Native in half the time it used to take us to build in Android and iOS. React Native is amazingly powerful and new features are developed by the community every day. This is the first time that as a developer I really believe that cross platform is as good as native!"
We believe that we are the only ones who can deliver state-of-the-art native apps on both platforms with proven quality in weeks, not months.
We started developing applications in React Native just six months after Facebook first released the technology. We’re so enthusiastic about it that we run the React Native London Meetup, one of only two in the city.
As we work embedded with our clients, we have a lot of experience in training and upscaling internal technical teams to ensure they are autonomous when we leave.
Veygo, Smarkets and MADE.com are examples of clients who are very happy with the result.
